Harveys Knob-Bearwallow Gap

10 miles, moderate terrain
27 miles from Roanoke, $3.25 carpool fee

Located in Botetourt and Craig Counties, the hike starts at the parking lot for the Andy Layne Trail. It takes the access trail up North Mountain to the North Mountain Trail. It follows the trail along the ridge of North Mountain with views of Craig Creek Valley. The trail then descends North Mountain at Stone Coal Gap. We will probably view some fall foliage and get some nice views at Mills Gap, Sharptop Overlook, Montvale Overlook, and Harveys Knob.
